Thanks, Tony..

With nothing much for him to do locally, the International Representative for west Belfast, Gerry Adams, MP, MLA, has been globe-trotting again. This time it was a short trip to the Middle East. But, as The Jerusalem Post reports, it was only made possible with a little help from his friend..

Quartet envoy Tony Blair intervened directly with Defense Minister Ehud Barak to enable Northern Ireland politician Gerry Adams through the Erez Crossing and into the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, where he met Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, The Jerusalem Post has learned.
